Sedgwick County is reminding residents that they can still recycle their used Christmas trees.

The county’s Environmental Resources Department has set up 22 recycling sites across Wichita and Sedgwick County. The sites will remain open until Jan. 24.

The trees will be ground into mulch. Residents can take mulch from any of the sites for free.
